Still, this info should help me a lot when I go back tomorrow. In addition, the contact mentioned that the navigation system was defective. The failure recurred several times. Certain features still does not work- passenger front window, heating element for car seat passenger, power outlet in console box. Apply power steering fluid to a new O-ring, and install it on the inlet joint. After I changed the o-ring I still had the noise. Then attach extra tubing to the disconnected hose and place it inside of the drain pan.
When you replace the hose, you also have to flush the reservoir, which is a process of removing the old fluid and pouring in the new. If there was no o-ring, then put one on and see what happens. I have problems with the 2nd gear. I just make enough off this site to pay for the domain cost and hosting. I have the same problem in my acura 2001 3. I even found that there have been prior power steering issues that resulted in recalls for this car.
While driving approximately 20 to 45 mph, the power steering pump made a loud whining noise as if there was no fluid. This is clearly a very dangerous issue, one that was serious enough at one time for a recall. Thanks so much for this! I called Acura and they said that even though I am experiencing the same issue as cars that are covered under the recall, my car is not covered. It's a loud windy noise that appears to be coming from the power steering pump. Safety risk: power steering fluid leaking onto a hot catalytic converter will generate smoke and possibly lead to an under-hood fire. Still, this info should help me a lot when I go back tomorrow.
Acura must have become aware of this as problem. The problem occured again, I was hearing knocking sound again. My mechanic is good but his employees are too rushed to explain anything. However, I am experiencing the same symptoms as described by both recalls. Now, when I first start my car it's hard to turn the wheel. These problems effect the performance and safety of the vehicles and I believe should be the basis for a mandatory recall.
My cars moans since like about 1 year. The cracks may possibly also cause the airbag to not properly deploy. Dealer states that this is a normal condition for the Acura Tl. Remove the right side engine compartment cover 7 clips and 1 bolt. If you have an extended warranty it will help. Had to purchase another battery. They're looking at it again tomorrow.
I got it jumpstarted and it ran perfectly until the above incident occurred. The vehicle was not repaired. Part failure was discovered at Honda dealership when the vehicle was being serviced for a replacement timing belt. This problem continued and a recall from the manufacture replaced power steering hose which was defective. Operation Number: 5121B5 Flat Rate Time: 0.
Very dissatisfied how Acura will not address the issues with the hfl and the power steering!!!!. They are saying there is nothing wrong but I am telling them there is. Soon after I wrote letters to both Acura customer service department and the coggin Acura requesting an inquiry and financial assistance to repair the hazardous vehicle. Any amount no matter how big or small is greatly appreciated. The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 625,762. The metal had fatigue in the area where the compliance bushing is mounted.
I too was told that a new steering pump was in order. The vehicle was taken to a dealer, where it was diagnosed that there was a crack in the power steering hose and the navigation system needed to be replaced. The approximate failure mileage was 160,000. I suggest this because the noise gets louder, much louder, when the steering wheel is turned. If you're just replacing the o-ring, why are you removing the pump? In my own vehicle, along with having to replace the power steering feed hose due to a previous recall, I have also had to replace the power steering pump and power steering suction hose. On may 19, 2008, he called Acura for reimbursement and was informed that he would not be reimbursed because the failure that was repaired was not the same as what was stated in the recall.
